Animal Nation: Congo In The Bronx - Gorillas Film Poster


A behind-the-scenes look at a project to recreate the Congo rainforest at the Bronx Zoo. Half a world away from the great wilderness of Africa, in the heart of the concrete jungle, a small slice of the Congo rainforest is being created for some very special gorillas. Following a decade of planning and years of work, New York's Bronx Zoo is turning six and a half acres of urban real-estate into a dense tropical rainforest and, in doing so educating its visitors and highlighting the plight of the gorillas of the Congo.
